I'm sorry honey, but I'm leaving tomorrow.
Don't cry now, go find me something I can borrow.
I might not come back, give me something you don't need.
I promise to protect it as long as I still breathe.
Don't you dare say that, honey, I won't let us part.
What else can I give to you? You're taking my heart.
No, I don't need it, and I never want it back.
I just want you back home, don't you slip through a crack.
I promise I'll be careful, now please don't worry.
I'm keeping your heart, I'm carrying your memory.
But you never know when a bullet might hit you.
Smile if that happens, I die happy, I had you.
You know that I'll cry, I won't make such a promise.
Can soldiers dying ever really bring in peace?
I'm proud of you, hun, but I'll be singing the blues.
You'll come back to me, I want to say I have you.
